Something which plays on your dormant synapses and erroneous dance ability
first of all, this great album is issued by a Portuguese imprint, Enoughrecords which is apparently the oldest netlabel being active so far. All other netlabels which started earlier and some of those which would embark on later than 2001 are unfortunately defunct now. However, here it is an elegant gross of jagged intelligent dance mould – sorry, music – from neighbouring Spain which is spiced up by galvanized electro riffs and noisy chiptune undercurrents. For instance, an astounding track called 2000 Problems which almost sounds like an electro(nic) version of Gang Of Four (RIP Andy Gill). Superb cyber punk composition where brittle electronic fabric and air are exquisitely balanced to go ultimately up to an ecstatic dance-appealed apotheosis. However, merry companion by robots can be met everywhere throughout the course of this 9-track outing. Even more, it may sound like an indulgence for a fully mechanic world to come when human race could not keep the pace anymore and robots are singular enough...to single out. And those joyous samples from vintage TV adverts just accentuate a steep gap between the different eras, between the past and future. Forthcoming dance party based purely on reason. Pure reason is a pure fun.

This one took me by surprise, as it effortlessly got accepted by my ears and mind. And I'm difficult to please!
I couldn't help but feel the influence of some "end of 1990s" electronica. Some melodies reminded me of the lighter works of the Orb (but more defined - with less reverb) while other would invoke the works of Thomas Fehlmann (Good Fridge period). Thankfully Chuzausen also injected their own spin on it, making this album fresh and original.
Their tunes will spin on my laptop and phone for a while, that's for sure. Great work, which I highly recommend. Bravo!
